Thanks to all who emailed and tweeted us:

“Same block as the fire over the summer (this one 1626). Firefighters arrived at 7:45am. Had to break down the door and through all of the windows on each level. Sawing through all of the window bars. Unsure if anyone was home or injured. Now at 8:05 there isn’t anymore smoke billowing out of the house and firefighters are coming out.

Update – thankfully no one was inside.”


A reader sends a shot of the carnage above:

“No clue what happened (accidental, deliberate)? Happened in Woodley Park, on 28th between Woodley and Cathedral. Pretty intense… I live on this block and didn’t hear any fire trucks last night. Hopefully no one was hurt, when I walked by at 7:30 am there wasn’t really anyone around.”

Also this morning there was a car fire that temporarily closed 14th Street at P in Logan Circle.

Ed. Note: Car-BQ season usually hits in the late winter months. I’m just kidding – car-bq season is of course year round!

Meanwhile in AdMo. Fire on Euclid between 17th and Ontario
